Kristiansand

Kristiansand literally means “Christian Beach”, named after the king who founded it in 1641. Today it is famous for its cathedral and its zoo.

Kristiansand is a town situated on the west coast of Norway. Its climate is one of the most attractive in the country because of the distinct seasons. Here you can visit the typical Scandinavian cathedral, the “dømkirke”, then don’t miss a visit to the Kanonmuseum, named for the impressive cannon, from where you will enjoy a beautiful view over the city. Sports lovers can enjoy rafting. Take a boat trip from the port of Kristiansand to explore the surrounding islands.
